Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has withdrawn from the England squad ahead of our pointless friendly against Holland after suffering a ‘slight’ groin strain in training.

On the back of this Fabio Capello has decided to place his faith in Ash for the wide left berth.

Speaking to the press, the England boss said:

‘It will be a good test for him, he has only played twice for me but the last time he did very well.’

May even watch this friendly then!
